reunite: 22 Jun – 02 Jul
Welcome to reunite at the RNCM, two weeks of live performances and events to bring our community of students and staff back together to celebrate the end of the year.
There’s lots to enjoy throughout the fortnight, including chamber orchestra concerts, acoustic sessions, and staff and students’ sports day, so take a look at the full listings below or view things at a glance to see what’s on offer.
It’s been a while, but we’re thrilled that the RNCM Bar and Café will be back in action from 4pm most days, serving food and drink for you to consume in groups of up to six people. Drinks can be taken into the Carole Nash Recital Room, Concert Hall and Theatre performances, and there’ll be a live audio/video feed of all the main performances throughout the Café and concourses.
50% of the tables will be available as on the day walk-ins, with the rest reserved for pre-booking. Bookings for all reunite events and performances (including staff and student audience and table bookings) must be made via Asimut. For instructions on how to book, visit the reunite at the RNCM Moodle page.
In the meantime, enjoy perusing the programme and adding some dates to your diary.
We can’t wait to see you there!

Keeping You Safe
So that we can all enjoy reunite and ensure that events go ahead as planned, it’s important that we continue to play our part in keeping our community safe.
Please adhere to the College’s current guidelines on face coverings and social distancing, and remember to take regular LFD tests if you’re spending time in the building.
Please note that while we’d love to open our doors to the public, reunite is an exclusive celebratory event for staff and students only. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
